(Scroll down for video) A man definitely gave up on ever getting his lost ring back after all those years, but he just got it back, according to press reports in Georgia.
the man, who lost his class ring 40 years ago found it again thanks in part to a facebook picture.
Richard Hale lost his precious ring in 1972, when he was fresh out of high school. Hale initially gave the ring to his then girlfriend and now wife Betty Ann. “I was afraid I was going to lose it,” she told a television news station. “So I returned it to him and he lost it,” she added.
Hale said he accidentally threw the ring out from his car in 1972 and had not seen since. Until now. His brother apparently saw the ring on facebook and passed the information on to Hale.
Ellen Ramey had found the ring many years ago. She told him she always had hoped to get the ring back to its owner. “My mother had a class ring like that,” Ramey said. “I wore it to school and lost it. The incident just stayed in my mind that it was important to return lost rings to people,” she added.
Ramey and Hale connected on facebook and now the ring is back with Hale, who puts it on the evening when he get home from work.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
